Change the World

What would you change about the world if you had the power? The answer to that question for most of us would be anything between making the world a more beautiful, kind and a better place in any way we can; but isn’t it peculiar that all of us would agree on this one answer…

The Successful Headmaster

Hefty, tall and bespectacled, wearing spotless double “veshti” (a two-fold long loincloth worn by elderly men in India) and a crisply ironed white bush shirt, its length reaching down to his knees, a large-size shirt pocket containing papers and a Parker fountain pen, properly buttoned shirt holes tied to each other with a thread, a…

Positivity Amidst Pandemic

And suddenly, the world stopped. Businesses stopped operating, employees were forced to work from home, and everyone was locked inside their houses. There was no war, yet people were dying all around the globe –millions of people died with an unforeseen threat that even the richest country almost gave up. For the first time in…

Stereotypes Shouldn’t Define Us

Humans are puzzling creatures. We easily decide who people are from their appearance, race, gender, place of birth, the family they grew up with, or their financial status. Stereotypes are a part of our everyday lives. If you don’t know what stereotype means, I’ll share it with you. It’s simply a widely held image or…

Bloom

How familiar we are with darkness can be quite surprising at times. You sit there and wonder how someone that looks so alive can actually be so melancholic. I believe that this darkness is what sets the right contrast for us to see clearly. But our role doesn’t end there, we don’t just survive and…

Dear Comrade

Dear Comrade, I know your life hasn’t been great lately. You don’t have anything good to talk about. Everything that you thought about your life went the other way. Just when you started to give “love” another chance to come and dwell in your life, you realised that it was a luxury that you couldn’t…

Change Forever, Like Never Before

Look at what we have become around this time. All we know is from the little information we get from our surroundings. It is tough to accept the reality when we feel threatened about our lives. There is a lot on hold for everyone. Getting anxious, feeling depressed and low is normal, it is fine,…

The Art of Talking

The desire to open up can be very strong sometimes- the idea of someone actually being able to understand and walk along your healing process with you can be very attractive. But the things that can go wrong in this seemingly “easy” decision can be overwhelming. When you first approach a person, you don’t think…

To Be or Not To Be?

Everything, including us, is subject to change. This is the intrinsic characteristic of Nature. One of the characteristics which changes is human behavior, in response to the circumstances and need of the situation. One can expand it starting from the need of a newborn child to the requirement of a grown-up person in the surroundings…

The Infinity Inside Now

I always thought moments were infinite, no matter how big or small they were. A moment can embrace you until you become nothing, or shun you with all of its details. And that’s why some memories never go away, no matter how hard you try to scrub them off your brain, and also that’s why…

Astronauts

We all get hurt, we have experienced how it feels to get abandoned, to fail, and to see the coldest sides of the people that were once warm with us. However, I’m a firm believer that the intensity of your pain is controlled by you- you choose to view yourself as the victim, or as…

Unified Coherence Vs Divisive Divergence

Every human being is possessive in nature. The feeling of this is mine, that is mine, it belongs to me, I inherited this, etc. is very common and cannot be avoided. But, when we translate this human feeling to worldly things and human relations or associations, an element of individual encirclement automatically comes about. Thus,…

Apologize

Not every human trait is humane. Humans envy, humans destroy, humans deceive, humans hurt, and humans can be possessive; and the mistake each and everyone of us make is accepting our mistake, giving ourselves a pat on the back even if we ruin somebody else’s day as long as that somebody isn’t us. One of…

Second Option

I wake up and I decide it’ll be a ‘Me-Day’. I won’t let any thoughts pull me down, and I won’t let my love for them make me stumble. I walk through the streets and admire the potential behind all of these strange faces. Time passes, and it almost feels like I’m untouched, like I’ve…
